About

Hold on while I overthink what I’m going to say.

I am a mom of three surviving on deep breaths and prayer.

I married my college sweetheart, an introvert. I pull him out of his shell, and he reels me back in.

I have a PhD in Organizational Behavior, which is just a fancy way of saying I enjoy studying and researching psychology and sociology.

I have a witty sense of humor and believe life is better when you are laughing. My life is far from perfect, but I choose to focus on the good and laugh about how crazy life can get.

“Adulting” is hard, and kids don’t come with instructions (or warning labels). The struggle is real! Trust me: you are not alone!

Kim Is Awesome is a reminder that you can be both a hot mess and a good mom. This blog is an unfiltered view of my life as a mom, wife, and Christian. I also plan to incorporate what I have learned through my research and studies.

I hope you leave here with a smile on your face and feeling encouraged!

PS If you are looking for a motivational speaker, let me know. I would love the opportunity!


When my husband and I were first married, I jokingly put my name as Kim Is Awesome during a highly competitive game of Wii Sports tennis. Before every competition, the screen would say, “Kim Is Awesome vs. John.”

From that point on, Kim Is Awesome became a running joke. I even named my phone Kim Is Awesome to be funny. So now, every time I get into my car, my dashboard tells me I am awesome. When I told my friends I was thinking about taking the plunge and blogging, most of them rooted for Kim Is Awesome as the name.
